Sites you’ll visit

  • Necropolis of Tarquinia
  • A well deserved UNESCO world Heritage site, and one of the most important cities in Etruscan times during their confederation against Rome. The Necropolis tombs are carved into rock and accessible only via sloping or steep corridors leading underground. The Etruscans were conquered by Rome in 311 BC but the Tombs (dating back to the 7th century BC) still offer a great insight to the life and enrichments they once had the luxury to. Some tombs are adorned with beautiful paints that include depictions of musicians, dancers, fishermen, hunters and even the extravagant design of flying birds and dolphins.

Tour description

Visit the Etruscan archeological site in Tarquinia accompanied by an expert guide who will show you an incredible number of ancient, pre-Roman treasures. Tarquinia (in Etruscan: Tárchuna), lies four miles inland from the Tyrrhenian Sea, just north of Civitavecchia. The town grew out of the ancient Tárchuna (2 miles northeast), which was one of the principal cities in the Etruscan confederation against Rome. Conquered by Rome in 311 BC, Tárchuna became a Roman colony. It declined during the late Roman Empire, and was abandoned after the Lombard (6th c. AD) and Saracen (8th c. AD) invasions. The tombs of the Necropolis of Tarquinia are carved in the rock and accessible only via sloping or stepped corridors. Most of them were made for a single couple and each constitutes a single burial chamber. Explore these ancient constructions, as well as apartments and the famous painted tombs, dating from the 7th c. BC. Adorned with scenes of human life that include hunters, fishermen, musicians, dancers, jugglers and athletes, the painted tombs illustrate the wealth and power of the occupants for whom they were built. For instance, the 4th c. AD 'Tomb of the Lionesses' consists of a small chamber with gabled roof. The painting depicts flying birds and dolphins and scenes from the life of the Etruscan aristocracy, and is just a taste of what you will experience on this tour.
